He is absolutely the cuddliest dog you will meet. He likes bed snuggles, is extremely good and friendly with all people, and has an absolutely lovable personality. Tuuka is fairly energetic when you get him up and going but also very good at being low energy in the house. He doesn't bark, is good with cats and is very smart. He also absolutely loves playing tug-o-war and jumping up to grab the rope.
Tuuka has lived with multiple dogs before and got along with them fine, however, he is very dominant and will need to be introduced carefully. Once the hierarchy is set he is laid back. He also plays very well with puppies.
He is good on walks but still pulls a bit and will take off after rabbits if he sees one. He will require someone strong to walk him until he gets some more training.
Tuuka loves getting human food and will always wait patiently in hopes that you will share it with him. He can be sneaky though and has been known to eat an entire prepared dinner when he was left alone with it for too long!
While he does have a crate to sleep in he is never crated in our household and we can leave him alone for hours without worrying about him chewing on things, going potty inside, or hurting himself.
Tuuka is pretty much perfect and will be an amazing friend to anyone that can give him a lot of love and also gives him enough outlets for his energy.
